THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT The Greater Louisville Medical Society’s mobile app has several features designed to help our physician members. Among the most useful is the “Report Insurance Hassle” button on the Main Menu. Upon pushing “Report Insurance Hassle,” this feature allows any GLMS physician member to instantly reach out to the appropriate GLMS staff and inform them of insurance related problems. In 2014 alone, our Physician Education and Practice Support Team helped physicians get back over $250,000 and expects to resolve over $1 million in the coming months. To report an insurance hassle, members will be asked to provide basic insurance and payer infor- mation including the carrier, reference number and whether or not the practice is contracted with the carrier through an independent practice association. This service is only for GLMS members and their office staff. For more information about insurance hassle reporting, please contact the GLMS Physician Education and Practice Support Department at [email protected]. Other features available on the mobile app include digital versions of the GLMS roster, our monthly publications, the GLMS Presidents e-Voice and even reminders of upcoming physician events.
